The world is suffering with many problems.

For a long time, we believed that the solution to social problems should only go through non-profit organizations.

But through the GSE course, you can learn another innovative way to solve socio-economic problems: the social business.

With Philanthropy University courses, you can not regret your time spent on training.

It is a theoretical- practical course, dynamic as they combine different tools such as videos, posthaste, readings. It is suitable for any one starting or with some idea on Social Entrepreneurship.

I took this course not knowing what to expect from PhilanthropyU, and having a lot of online course experience from all over. I can honestly say that this platform is unique, and quite literally one of the best ones out there. I loved the podcasts as they held quite a lot of useful information, more than I expected. The videos were scarce in comparison to how much other sites rely on them, but they were great.

The readings were deep dives into the knowledge base.

Finally the work you had to do was interesting: For one they actually helped quite a lot to identify certain parts about your venture. I did find them frustrating at times, but I think that was more me having to open my mind than anything else.

I found the peer assignments to be tedious at best, if they worked, I found myself not being able to see their work to review it. I guess one flaw in the system, but that isn't so bad!

I would recommend !

Taking the Global Social Entrepreneurship Course is an eye opener for me, I learnt things I would not have considered at all before starting my venture, what really motivated me to the end of this course were real life practical examples from social entrepreneurs who spoke on not only their achievements, but their challenges and how they scaled through, how their idea was birthed to how it became a reality, how they started, methods they used to build their organizations and why they used such methods. I am definitely taking another course. Thank you Philanthropy University Team for this opportunity.
